So, its been a while since I made anything, about a year or so. Mainly because I've had this new job and that takes up a lot of time but recently I've had the 'itch' again to start making stuff and I thought I'd start again with something I had seen previously but give it a new look. Now, I'm sure we've all seen this image from Gryphman on Deviantart... http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs32/f/2008/195/9/8/Animated_Star_Saber_v2_by_Gryphman.jpg[ ..and what with being a bit of an old skool Takara nut I wanted to try and bring this to life, so, armed with a Leader Class Animated Megatron i set to work. 1st I gutted him of the electronics, mainly because every time I touched him, he laughed at me. Then i covered certain areas with stryrene and a little 3mm Acrylic to get certain chest details, sanded down and sculpted new parts for the head, put in his 'shoulder cannons', primed, airbrushed and painted and finished all off with Pledge Floor Wax (the UK's version of Future Finish) The sword was made from something I had kicking round for a few years and was originally some kind of car decoration off the front of a magazine. I am very pleased with this as I haven't done it for so long and as I had time on my hands away from work I decided to give it a go again. As always, feedback and critique are welcomed. Now for the pics... LET'S SAY GO!
